Chips, Salsa, and salsa music were a common theme in my home growing up. We always had a crowd at my parents home multiple times a week. We have a large family from cousins to aunts to uncles to friends that became family.
My dad was an AC technician for many years. He would often go to factories for jobs. One particular job led him to a tomato plant. Let’s just say we had a lot of salsa. I mean he was blessed with cases of tomatoes! My mother’s salsa recipe was the inspiration for this simply salsa recipe. You gotta have the cilantro, the onion, the lime, and the jalapeño for the freshest salsa you will ever have!
Salsa can be made in many ways. This particular salsa is our go to favorite because it has simple and fresh ingredients that we always have on hand. This recipe agrees with many diet plans as it has vegetables, is low calorie, and has zero fat. It’s healthy! What you pair it with is up to you but it can alter the health factor. Some great ideas to pair with this salsa recipe are of course tortilla chips, over chicken, or on tacos. Sometimes I slice cucumbers, sprinkle them with a little salt, and scoop this salsa right on top. It is a delicious and healthy snack with no guilt and tons of nutrition. We hope you enjoy!
Please enjoy making this recipe as much as we do and remember to create long lasting family memories around that delicious chip bowl. Enjoy!Print
